Got a welfare check call of a 92 yr old woman, who sometimes walks up and down the road and doesn’t know where she is. Sometimes forgets her door is open so thinks she is locked out.
Neighbors call and said, she forgets a lot of things and her hands are ice cold to the touch. So they let her warm up in their home. We go by and check, she has 2 sons who just forget about her. No food in the fridge, only milk and old lemonade.
Only eating a bag of Cheerios, place hasn’t been cleaned recently. All she wanted to know is why her sons don’t bring her food or check on her. She said she just need a couple sandwiches or something to least not be hungry.
Without her knowing, we left and got her some groceries for her home. Big rotisserie chicken, some sandwich items to last a week or 2, some chunky soups, bunch of chips and meat, some waters.
Knocked on her door and she was all smiles and in disbelief someone actually cared enough about her to even help. Not always about running and gunning catching bad guys. Sometimes just showing someone they aren’t alone can change their lives. Like I said from day one, “changing lives one smile at a time”
